2017 Official Offseason Thread

Recommended Posts

the problem with this thought process is it considers Vucevic's ridiculous mid-range shooting in 14-15 and 15-16 to be who he is rather than weird peaks. I don't think it's right to expect him to hit 48% of his deep twos. 42% seems closer to what we should expect.

 

The way he'll bounce back is taking more shots at the rim but I'm not sure that will have a positive team impact as posting a guy up hurts ball movement. Also, putting him at the rim underutilizes his passing.

 

So it's kinda a catch 22 and why I don't think he'll bounce back. More deep twos = lower scoring efficiency but better passing and better team offense. More post play = higher scoring efficiency but worst passing and worse team offense.

 

I don't think him being under the rim is any better. I don't remember the numbers but at some point we determined he is really bad under the rim.

he's not bad. He's just not good enough to justify being featured.

Made me think of this article from awhile ago,
